Kids Helping Kids

There’s a great opportunity in our neighborhood to help kids help other kids.

Robert E. Lee’s Cougar Character Club members are collecting donations for Captain Hope’s Kids. Between May 12 and May 23, there will be a drop-off box on the front porch at 5843 Vanderbilt. Community donations are welcome. Donations will also be accepted at LGNA’s May 21 event at the Vagabond.

Items most needed:

  • Diapers
  • School supplies (notebooks, pencils, scissors, crayons)
  • Toiletries (brushes, combs, hairbands)
  • Toys, books, clothes (new and used)

The Cougar Character Club meets every other month during the school year at Robert E. Lee Elementary. The club is open to 5th graders and is sponsored by LGNA. May’s topic is “Helping Others Just Makes You Feel Good!” CCC Members are collecting clothes and toys for children in need.

Captain Hope’s Kids, an organization that meets the needs of homeless children, is working with CCC members to learn how important it is to help others in our community. Go to for more information on Captain Hope’s Kids.

Your contributions will be gratefully appreciated.
